Speedtail up for £2.5M with JZM

‪McLaren Speedtail – JZM Porsche https://jzmporsche.com/cars/mclaren-speedtail-u200...

Don’t mind these but can think of a lot of other things to spend £2.5M on.

That’s pretty strange that it’s not for sale with a McLaren dealer - I wonder why?

You’d have thought they’d buy back a Speedtail, surely?

Could the owner have bought it? Then use the business to sell it.

Is there any recorded accidents?

JZM also have a 918, 991 Speedster and a Pista... you’d have thought Porsche and Ferrari would’ve bought them back. wink

Monstrosity of a car with an even worse name.

The original owner lives near me - has loads of expensive cars - I’ve seen that one in the flesh a few times - not sure why he is selling it

Because he could I guess?

I like Mclarens but I'm not a fan of any of the specials really, the interior of that one is hideous for me, I just don't see the value in them, let's face it they are all the same underneath pretty much from the 12C through to the Elva! Engines vary a bit but all basically the same, a few more cc here, a different turbo there and the chassis is the same, carbon tub a few frame rails and fully active or "normal" suspension and I won't mention the electrics. The cost is in the exclusivity of a few models and thats it!

As I said at the beginning I like them I'm not knocking them, mines great but possibly up for sale soon because I want another one a bit further up the range! The value in them is driving them not sticking in a garage thumbupwhistle

That interior is magnificent, it looks such a special place to sit and worth every penny.

The exterior on this one looks rather ordinary though, that Burton Blue just does the shape no favours at all.

What a beautiful car. Like most McLarens the cockpit when viewed from above follows a teardrop shape - the most aerodynamic sub-sonic shape.

720S from above

Not that I could ever afford one but, to my eyes, that fell out of the ugly tree and hit every branch on the way down

It's not ugly (see Senna for that title) though it does always remind me of the paint sample models that dealers and body shops sometimes use, you can almost imagine the meeting 'hang on lads I've got a great idea' (this does not mean I don't like McLarens, it's quite the opposite)

Yes. This was an amazing engineering exercise, and the aerodynamic shape that is also functional makes it far prettier to my eyes than only-for-show Italians.

Exactly
But then the owner and vendor would miss out on a potentially big profit

Looks like a key fob, or paint sample model

Nothing worse than willing buyer missing out on the sold out allocation, - piqued? wink
